Please do not buy that hard drive. It is beyond overpriced. Any SATA 2.5" Hard Drive should fit, but I think yours needs to be a 9.5mm height drive since its a 2007 model.

This should work:
WD Black 500GB 7200RPM drive for $100

Or for a list of all 500GB HDs on Newegg.com that are for laptops:

I've never changed a HD in a 2007 mbp, but i'm sure ifixit has a step-by-step picture tutorial.

Thanks for the responses guys.

I have a friend supplying me the HD, so hopefully I'll get a good deal on it.
Also have the fit it guide so I'm set to go.
